Great first job
Forklift Operator/Labourer (Former Employee), Airdrie, AlbertaMarch 29, 2015
Pros: Close to home
Cons: Low pay, worked my entire high school summers.
Learnt the importance of making a dollar. Had great management at the Airdrie location. First day got on forklift and my training was "practice on some pallets" and after that for the next three years I only had one error where I spilt a couple sheets of plywood. Next week we got a photo from Head Office where someone dropped and entire 50 layer bundle which went all over the yard. There were four people including myself that worked there so I was responsible for every aspect in the operation. Helped out in the shop, completed sales, operator, cleaning, inventory count and everything else that would happen at a warehouse.

Pretty good place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee), West St Paul, MBAugust 5, 2014
Pros: privately owner by a great guy
Cons: not enough customers at times.
I would arrive at work and help set up the mixing machines and computers, with another person. I would learn paint combo's every day. Management here was very good. My co-workers were great to work with. The hardest part of the job was going home at night. The most enjoyable part of the job was going to work in the morning.

This company allows you to make a great wage, however you have to work 12-14 hours everyday, be screamed at and insulted for every mistake you make, and don't expect to be properly trained either.

Very un-organized workplace
Primary Receiver (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABAugust 28, 2012
Pros: lots to learn
Cons: not a steady shift
A typical day at work was going to the back and unloading what had been delivered and get product ready to be delivered. And sometimes deliver them. I learned more about the density of wood, and what types of wood were usually used, why they were used, what made them good/bad. As well as wood substitutes, such as MDF(medium density fibreboard) or MDO(medium density overlay), my co-workers were easy to get a long with, never had any issues. The most challenging part of the job was probably driving the fork lift truck without being trained or actually knowing how to drive it. I enjoyed the information that I was able to get while being there.
